I went to turn on my lenovo laptop with windows xp after it had been sitting for the past few months untouched (iPad, wife's laptop, work computer available so there was no need). When I turn it on I do not hear the cooling fan, I used to be able to tell that it was on. It gets to the starting windows screen (never to the log in screen) then reboots, same if I go into safe mode. Is it possible the fan quit and the overheating is causing the reboots or am I hooped and going to have to re-format and reinstall?
